Can you find the iguana?
Another chapter in what I like to call the Adventures of Fodder and Son. My 9 year-old boy and I are traveling to the Galapagos Islands to swim with the fishes in a non-mafia hit kind of way.
Sander (my nine-year old boy) and I (my thirty-nine year old self) decided to take a trip to the Galapagos Islands. For us, the Galapagos is an almost mythical place, sort of like a Neverland for nature lovers. It seems like a far off place, where only a few people have ever been (I’ve since found out that by “few” that means …
Rise and shine in Quito, use the bathroom in a normal fashion for what, unbeknownst to us, is the last time until we get back, and head out to the airport where our Quito guide points us in the right direction, and off we go to the AirGal gate. I’ve never heard of AirGal before (but I did have a buddy who had an airgal, it was a lonely …
Our second day in the Galapagos was a biggie. We went to the Tortoise reservation, we went snorkeling and saw marine iguanas, and we finished with a sea kayak and more snorkeling.
The day starts with Filipe and our “day guide” who take us to the other side of the island to the tortoise center. I’m going to be honest here, the …
The fourth Day of our trip was “boat day,” which meant we spent most of it on a nice, motorized boat. We saw Kicker Rock, Punta Pint (or something like that) and Lobo Island. The locals call sea lions “sea wolves” which is getting us closer to the sea lab name that makes the most sense, so “Lobo Island” is …
Today we left San Cristobal for Isabela. Isabela is completely different than San Cristobal in that it looks like another planet. If you want to start a rumor that the Mars Rover didn’t actually go to Mars, just take some pictures of Isabela with a little remote controlled car and put it on YouTube.
But first, a quick description of the …
Today was our second day on Isabel, and the plan was horseback riding followed by a trip to the Wall of Tears.
It’s a rainy day in the Galapagos, recall, it is the rainy season as we head up the long road to the top of the active volcano where we’re going to ride horsed (again, ten fingers and toes, that’s the priority). We put …
Today is our last day with Filipe. We left Isabel for the highlands of Santa Cruz, the third, and final island of our Galapagos archipelago trip. Well actually, we technically see the Island of Baltra because that’s where the airport’s located. You land on Baltra, then take a ferry to Santa Cruz. I’m not sure why it’s …
Today we wake up in our tree fort, take a tour of the grounds, and take a water taxi to hell (I mean back to San Cristobal) where we prepare to go fishing.
As I mentioned, we’re off the official tour now. I want to take this time to issue a late foreshadowing alert. What I forgot to mention earlier was that over breakfast one day, I was …
Today was day one of our fishing adventure. We woke up, put on our trusty anti-sea-sick ear patches and left for the pier.
We met Ronnie at the boat dock, took a fun bay taxi (bay taxis are the little boats that take you to your boat which is anchored in the bay. You’re not allowed to just anchor up at the pier, so you pay one of these …
